EAT Club Joins Forces With Bay Area Celebrity Chef Joey Altman

Partnership With Professional Chef Brings Quality Lunches to Local Companies

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2014) - EAT Club, the lunch delivery service built to meet the needs of businesses, today announced a new partnership with local celebrity chef Joey Altman to provide professional-grade lunches to businesses in the Bay Area. Altman has developed signature dishes exclusively for EAT Club's business lunch delivery service, open for pre-order beginning Oct. 8 and available for a limited period beginning Oct. 13. The partnership signals a milestone for EAT Club, which has served more than 1.7M meals to some of the most advanced companies in the Bay Area and Los Angeles.

"The partnership with Chef Altman is yet another way EAT Club is raising the bar for our customers, meeting their high quality expectations and driving us one step closer to making lunch at the office one of the most enjoyable meals of the day," said Frank Han, EAT Club CEO. "EAT Club provides enterprise-level features for ordering through an easy-to-use app, making lunch in the office as simple as one click. Company-provided lunches allow businesses to reap significant benefits, including office collaboration, productivity and employee satisfaction. We hope to encourage this movement through continued partnerships with notable chefs in the future."

Chef, restaurateur and TV host Joey Altman's career has included launching two restaurants, a cookbook and the James Beard award-winning TV show Bay Cafe. While formally trained alongside master chefs in France, it was Altman's travels to Mexico, the Caribbean and the American Southwest that largely inspire his eclectic cooking style. Altman is known for crafting complex flavors and contrasting textures, making his dishes unique and signature reflections of his style. Altman plans to bring this expertise to EAT Club by delivering a one-of-a-kind lunch experience, with dishes that feature bright colors and bold flavors.

"It's an honor to partner with such an entrepreneurial company in efforts to enhance the overall lunchtime experience for rising tech companies in the Bay Area," said Altman. "Adapting my favorite recipes for EAT Club customers has been a great experience. My signature dishes should definitely spice up the lunch hour!"
